Prince Liam was born on November 28 in Geneva, Switzerland. Felix's son joins big sister Princess Amalia, two. As evidenced by the newly released images, the royal couple's daughter seems to be taking to her new role as a big sister.
In one photo, Amalia sweetly cradled her baby brother. The picture shows the doting, young Princess tenderly resting her cheek against Liam's head as he peacefully slept in her arms. A second photograph released by the palace features the now family-of-four. Princess Claire and Prince Félix posed with both of their children as Amalia stared at her brother, while gently stroking his face.
Prince Liam's birth was announced just a few hours after his arrival, with an official statement from the palace revealing that Prince Félix had stayed by his wife's side throughout the delivery, and that both mother and baby were doing well.
Prince Félix and Princess Claire have been married since September 2013. They held two ceremonies: a civil wedding in Konigstein im Taunus in Germany, followed by a religious ceremony a few days later in the Basilica of Sainte Marie-Madeleine in Sainte-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume, France.
Félix, 32, is the second son of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg, and is second in line to the throne. His older brother, 35-year-old Prince Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg, is married to the Belgian Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy.
Prince Liam is now fourth in line to the throne of Luxembourg, behind his uncle, as well as his father and his older sister.
